School facilities for hire
From 1 April 2017 charges for school lets will increase by 10 per cent.
The decision to increase the charges for school lets was made at the Council’s 2017/18 Budget meeting on 16 February 2017.
The Council’s budget gap for 2017/18 has been identified at £20.344m and this price increase is anticipated to generate additional income of £29,437 which will help the Council to deliver a balanced budget in 2017/18.
Also from 1 April 2017 the management of school lets moves from our Care and Learning Service to the Development and Infrastructure Service.
Examples of the types of school lets affected include fitness classes and sports, charity and community events, creative arts, concerts and workshops, meetings and conferences, youth activities, commercial activities, celebrations such as discos, weddings and ceilidhs, and Highland Instrumental Activity.
To book the use of a school facility, contact the school to discuss requirements and availability.
